Supported Platforms


GigaSpaces InsightEdge and XAP are implemented using Java, and require the following:

  • Java version 6, 7 or 8
  • Any operating system that is supported by Java (for example Linux/Unix, Microsoft Windows, and Apple Mac OS/X)

XAP.NET requires Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 or later. Additional information is provided in the Installation section of the XAP.NET Guide.

For information on VMWare support, refer to the VMWare guidelines.


The following issues have been encountered in specific use cases:

  • SUSE-10 Linux Enterprise Service Pack 3 has bugs that make the OS network layer unreliable. Do not use this operating system with GigaSpaces products.
  • Java 8 and Java 7 (> u79): In these versions, the behavior of the multicast operations regarding IPv6 has changed, and this can cause long initial connection times. To mitigate this issue, add ‘’ to the JVM arguments.


GigaSpaces C++ source code can be built on Linux and Windows 32bit or 64bit machines. The current supported platforms and compilers are:

  • Linux
    • 64bit - gcc.4.1.2
    • 32bit - gcc.4.1.2
  • Windows
    • 32/64bit C++ for Visual Studio 2008 and 2010 (VS9.0/10.0)
